The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration by Isabel Wilkerson
The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration

odijooonpurpose, September 2, 2012

One of the best/most important books I read all year.

This one changed the framing of black-white relations in the American 'not-south' so that I better understand many of the dynamics that were previously opaque to me. Isabel Wilkerson did a FINE (as in really good, not just passable) job in bringing her lead personalities to life, letting history speak for itself.

Brava!

Sparks of Divinity: The Teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar from 1959 to 1975 by B K S Iyengar

Finally, a long out-of-print classic. Short 'sparks' from BKS Iyengar compiled by his student Noëlle Perez-Christiaens, give a window into Mr. Iyengar's being & practice. Rodmell press has created a lovely book, nice to hold, complete with very useful index & glossary.

Meditations from the Mat: Daily Reflections on the Path of Yoga by Rolf Gates
Meditations from the Mat: Daily Reflections on the Path of Yoga

I love this book -- one day at a time, exploring themes that START on the mat, & very quickly expand outward to include your whole life. YUM.

Unfamiliar Fishes by Sarah Vowell
Unfamiliar Fishes

odijooonpurpose, March 27, 2012

A-plus -- this was great to read on my first trip to the islands. I was already very aware of being on someone else's land, this book brought home some of the history, and made it come alive. Vowell's dry humor comes through bringing some dark days in American history forth for us to hold together. Pick this one up, read it, savor it!
